OSpam-a-not: Our New Joomla Spam-Fighting Extension

OSpam-a-notWe're Knights of the Round Table,
We dance when ere we're able,
We do routines and chorus scenes
With footwork impeccable.
We dine well here in Camelot,
We eat ham and jam and spam a lot.
--Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Last year at OSTraining.com, we started using an unobtrusive technique on some of our web forms in an attempt to stop the flood of spambots submitting junk on those forms. It worked better than we could have hoped and we've been talking about turning it into a Joomla! plugin ever since.

With apologies to Monty Python we are calling it OSpam-a-not.

The Future of XMap

xmapThere is something unique for me about XMap.

We first used XMap back in 2007 and we're still running XMap on OSTraining.com in 2015.

I can't think of very few other Joomla extensions that have been so useful for so long. We hope we're able to use XMap for a long time to come.

But, XMap development isn't moving forward. The last major release was version 2.3 back in 2012. The last minor update was in the summer of 2013.

We'd love to help move XMap forward.

The Winning Mindset For Inbound Marketing

Inbound marketing is the newest, latest term for "passive" online marketing.

In contrast to outbound marketing, (i.e. going out and hunting down customers) it involves tempting customers to come to the marketers by building attractive online presences.

In other words, it's one of the primary ways online marketers have been operating for many, many years.

I'm So Very Happy With the New OSMeta

osmetaAbout a year ago we ran into a serious SEO problem at OSTraining.com.

We had 1000's of articles and menu links. We had too much content and trying to manage the search engine titles and descriptions was becoming an impossible task. I needed to open and edit each article individually.

So, we set out to build OSMeta. Finally, after a year of effort, OSMeta is what I hoped it would be.

It truly is the easiest way to add metadata to Joomla.

We've just released OSMeta 1.2 with a ton of improvements. Here's what's new:
